Brazzle Dazzle Brilliance!
Pete, a young orphan, runs away to a Maine fishing town with his best friend--a lovable, sometimes invisible dragon named Elliott! When they are taken in by a kind lighthouse keeper, Nora (Helen Reddy), and her father (Mickey Rooney), Elliott's prank playing lands them in big trouble. Then, when crooked salesmen try to capture Elliott for their own gain, Pete must attempt a daring rescue.

I remember seeing clips of Pete's Dragon in the Disney Channel commercials back in the day. I was always curious for its live-action/animation mix, but never saw it in full until now. I didn't realize it was a musical. It reminds me of the live-action Popeye movie a bit, the way the set was designed.
